Buckfield Food Pantry Receives Donation from Northeast Bank

Bank Joins Forces with Neokraft Signs to deliver $1,000 Gift and new sign

Northeast Bank today announced a donation of $1,000 to the Buckfield Food Pantry, to go toward much needed food and supplies. In addition, Lewiston-based Neokraft Signs donated a new sign so that clients of the pantry will know when it is open. Northeast Bank’s Employee Volunteer program, which allows each employee to volunteer in the community up to 2 days per year, has enabled each employee at the Buckfield Branch to contribute about 36 hours annually to the food pantry, totaling over 140 hours.

“As the Bank continues to increase its charitable commitments, assisting in the fight against hunger is one of our highest priorities,” said Jim Delamater, President and CEO of the Northeast Community Banking Division. “With so many members of our communities not being able to support themselves, it is up to the generosity of others to step in and help.”

“We cannot thank Northeast Bank and Neokraft Signs enough for their generous donations,” said Theresa Deane, Coordinator of the Buckfield Food Pantry.  “Before we received our new sign, we were using a cardboard square, lettered with black marker.”

For those who would like to provide support, the food pantry is in need of both monetary and food donations. For more information, please call Theresa Deane at 207.336.2230.
